Four Chambers of Skilled Crafts and four Chambers of Trade and Industry are involved in the "ValiKom" project. Further project partners include the West German Chambers of Crafts and Skilled Trades’ Council and the Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training in the Crafts Sector at the University of Cologne. Both of the umbrella associations of the chambers (German Con- federation of Skilled Crafts and the German Chambers of Commerce and Industry) support the project and are responsible for strategic management and communication. The partners receive further support from a project advisory board whose members are active in education policy.
